It’s been two weeks on the road and two losses for the George Mason High School varsity football team, and on the horizon for the team’s return home this week is a matchup against last year’s Bull Run District title-winning team that promises tough competition.
After a 27-0 loss at Luray High School Sept. 7, the Mustangs traveled to Warren County High School last Friday to take on the Wildcats. Mason couldn’t recover from a rocky start to the game and was defeated 58-21.
“Warren County outplayed us on Friday night,” Mason football head coach Tony Green said. “We played our worst first half of football we have played all year, and Warren took advantage of all our mistakes.” Green added that the Mason players and coaches are working on correcting the errors made in last week’s game as they prepare for the coming games.
This Friday, the Mustangs take on Central High School at home. The Falcons are 3-1 this season.
“Cental won our district last year, so we have to be prepared to play another tough opponent,” Green said.
